ACM Distinguished Speakers Program:  talks by and with technology leaders and innovators

Transferring an Automated Test Generation Tool to Practice

Speakers: Tao Xie
Topic(s): Security & Information Protection,Software Engineering


Producing industry impacts has been an important, yet challenging task for the research community. Although there are a few cases on reporting "what to do" (reflecting good things to keep doing and replicate elsewhere), there are still strong needs of reporting successful technology-transfer cases and stories behind them for the research community to learn from and replicate. This talk presents the successful technology-transfer case of Pex ( and its relatives (tools derived from or associated with Pex) from Microsoft Research and lessons learned from more than eight years of research efforts by the Pex team of Microsoft Research in collaboration with academia.
